Abstract

A previous report described the use of coils and gelatin sponge pledgets as a means of producing ureteral occlusion to achieve urinary diversion in patients with urinary fistulas. The authors have performed this procedure in nine ureters of six patients. Five of the patients had urinary leaks with extensive pelvic tumor, and one had severe chronic cystitis. Ureters were occluded with use of Gianturco coils and gelatin sponge pledgets placed via a sheath through a percutaneous nephrostomy tract. The procedure was successful in all patients as judged by means of antegrade nephrostogram or intravenous pyelogram and by marked improvement or complete resolution of symptoms.
